Evolution Sports Partners Launches SA360 To Help Lead And Enhance Student-Athlete Success On And Off The Field

Morristown, NJ (PRWEB) July 10, 2014

Damon Evans, Founder and Managing Director of Evolution Sports Partners (ESP), and former Athletic Director at University of Georgia, has announced that ESP has developed and released SA360, a breakthrough program to drive student athlete success. SA360 leverages the companys deep roots in student success, NCAA athletics and web and mobile engagement. Our team delivers highly specialized solutions that help student athletes and athletic departments achieve their greatest potential. The program is built off 20+ years of experience with more than 500 institutions regarding student retention, mental health and academic success, said Damon Evans. Co-founders Peter Kraft and Tracy Howe have also served major colleges and universities through web-based student retention programs and early alert tools, positively impacting more than 3 million students and positively influencing student well-bring and retention rates.

SA360 is designed to maximize student-athlete success by immersing them in highly engaging, relevant information, tools and resources while providing athletic departments, coaches and staff with real-time data and innovative outreach tools to help and support them. The web and mobile-based program employs personalized dynamic messaging, real-life interactive scenarios, pulse surveys, self-tests, virtual mentors, live chat and other features to help students navigate their academic and athletic careers and seek help when needed. Theres also a version of the program for parents of student athletes to gain their alliance and support.

Evolution Sports Partners today released a short video introducing the program, which will debut at several universities this fall. View now at

We expect our student-athletes to be superheroesbalancing the physically taxing, time-consuming demands of an NCAA sport with the intensive pressure of college-level academics, while all the time navigating a new social landscape, said Damon Evans. Athletic departments possess a genuine desire to help student-athletes succeed on and off the field; however, tools to help student-athletes academically and personally have lagged behind those that help them excel in their sport. SA360 helps close this critical gap.

SA360s content and features include:

Quick ReadsCrafted for Mobile Millennials: Expert-written, student-approved short-form articles such as 5 NCAA Violations That Most Students Dont Know, Dealing With the Public Pressure to Win, A Role ModelLike It or Not and What You Dont Know About Alcohol Is Killing Your Game.

Tailored, Proactive Messaging Technology: Periodic updates (via email and mobile) based on the student-athlete lifecycle as well as each users individual engagement trajectory.

Self-Tests and Real-Life Scenarios: Self-tests and interactive heuristics that enable students to receive highly customized recommendations based on their individual input.

Virtual Mentors: First-person digital video vignettes on a range of success topics that help convey social norms and help student-athletes navigate the unique challenges they face.

Actionable Data Through Admin Dashboards & Pulse-Surveying: Pulse surveys garner directional data about students progress and disposition throughout the deployment of the SA360 program. Pulse-Surveying also provides immediate feedback from student athletes on their understanding, satisfaction, health and mental wellness. Unlike long-form assessment inventories, pulse surveys are designed to provide staff with early indicators of those at risk through the Staff Dashboard. A live chat option lets students connect directly with advisors.

Expert-Written Content Library: SA360 enables clients to choose from a diverse set of topics that align with the learning outcomes and pain points of their campus environment as well as existing Life-Skills programming.
